Do you like the sound of this, but have no idea how this translates to your current reality? I mean how exactly do you 'follow your bliss', when so much that happens in life seems to work against that? Read More

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Whether you are into Valentine’s or not, I’m sending you some love this holiday… because I think we all could use some… especially right now!
So far this winter has brought heartbreak, shock, deep disappointment, fear, new agreements, sudden transitions, and protests. On a personal level, national level, and global level, we are in the thick of it.
In a climate of descent, discord, and separation, like we’ve been in… those of us devoted to being loving, guardians of human rights and mother nature are having our spiritual muscles tested.....
“There are only two emotions: love and fear. All positive emotions come from love, all negative emotions from fear. From love flows happiness, contentment, peace, and joy. From fear comes anger, hate, anxiety and guilt. It's true that there are only two primary emotions, love and fear. But it's more accurate to say that there is only love or fear, for we cannot feel these two emotions together, at exactly the same time. They're opposites. If we're in fear, we are not in a place of love. When we're in a place of love, we cannot be in a place of fear."
~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
As it became clear that Donald Trump would be the next president of the United States, I was on the "What the hell just happened?" train with many other Americans. And after the disbelief faded, what was left was sense of disorientation that hasn’t quite lifted yet.....
“Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
~ Howard Thurman
What ignites your inner fire?
Is it a person? A cause or belief? A vision? A project?
What are the things you find yourself obsessing over, getting lost in, fighting for?
"Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place." - Rumi

If the events unfolding in our country have you feeling like everything's falling apart, or like things are worse then ever… I feel you. Read More
All of the recent acts of violence, all the pain and injustice that has been a part of all of our daily lives recently, has made it hard for me to get out of bed some mornings.
We are undergoing a deep transformation, as a nation, as a globe, as a collective conciousness. A new level of transparency, technology, and awareness, is allowing us to have direct contact with the actual state of our nation, and the world.

I’m back from Lighting in a Bottle Festival, a weekend full of workshops, yoga, music, dancing, and lots of beauty!
My Tantric Lap Dance workshop and Love, Sex, & Intimacy panel went great! I get so energized watching people have deep connected experiences with their bodies and each other. It is my fuel to keep offering the work I do..... (Keep Reading)
This week I shared the most intimate story I ever told in front of over 120 people! I was participating in a great event called the Pussy Party, a night of art made by women, curated and produced by Salon no 13.
I was given the honor of opening the show with an interactive talk I crafted called “She Speaks”. In this talk I share about the very first time my Pussy or Yoni, ever spoke to me. Yes, she has a voice… and it's OK if you think that’s crazy. And if you think that’s awesome, see details below about an immersion for women I'm doing in two weeks. Read More
Another gifted soul has completed his work here… when I found out that Prince passed away at the young age of 57, there was a moment of disbelief. This moment seems to happen every time I’m told about an unexpected death. And I realized it’s because as much as death is a part of life, no part of me expects it to happen.
Maybe because its seems morbid to acknowledge that death can happen in any moment. But if I did let this in all the way, maybe I would celebrate my life and everyone in it even more than I do now.
Maybe I would praise everyday I wake up, even the ones that are rough. I would dance more, care less about censoring myself, and pause more throughout my day to feel the sweet breath that keeps me alive! Read More
Yoni is a sanskrit word that means ‘source’ or 'sacred space’. The space it is referring to are a woman's genitals and reproductive organs. But it’s not just referring to anatomy, Yoni is a word that also encompasses the energy and potential for wisdom, life, and power that comes from this space.
So while there may be a lot of woo-woo connotations to this word, I still love it for the holistic meaning it gives this important part of a woman’s body. In contrast the latin origin of the word vagina, means ‘sheath'.... as in where you would store a sword. Call me crazy, but I prefer to define my lady parts as a sacred space. Read More
Spring has sprung! Happy Renewal!
The overall energy of Spring and the holidays and rituals we have to mark it, are about renewal & resurrection. New life bursts forth from the stillness and death of winter. If you experience an uptick in activity, inspiration, or vitality, perhaps you are in the flow of the season.
The seasons are one of the many transitions we experience in life. Transition is part of nature. Birth and death, Love and Loss, Building and Dissolution. These cycles can bring a lot of upheaval, emotion, confusion, and fear for us humans. And they are an unavoidable part of life.
So how can we move through transition with more ease, grace, and acceptance? Here are a few things that really helped me move through several big transitions with more trust and grace: Read More
"Speak the truth even if your voice shakes" - Maggie Kuhn
I love the quote above because for many years this is exactly what happened to me. Every time I expressed something that was vulnerable or made me emotional, my voice would shake…. a lot!
It made me hate these moments, I would feel weak, and embarrassed by my shaky voice. I would feel like no one would listen or take me seriously. Or worse... that they would pity me, and make fun of, or de-value the very sensitive truth I was sharing with them. Read More

Are you more comfortable being visible or flying under the radar? When you desire to get something done is it easy to take action? Or does it become overwhelming or daunting? Do you feel up to the challenges that arise in day to day life? Or is it easy to feel defeated and want to give up? Read More
It would be so normal to feel a combo of all these possibilities... And one experience is not necessarilaly better than another. But these questions help us hone in on the area of consciousness that the 3rd chakra is processing for us.
